Messy Room

by Shel Silverstein

Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.

Poem of the Week for: 07/17/2018 - 07/23/2018

Although you may feel close to your neighbors and friends, there is nothing like family. These are the ones who are closest to you in blood. You share the same history and ancestors who cared for you. When you really need help, family members are the ones who are most likely to come through. This week's poem is an ode to family from Edgar A. Guest (1881 -1959), "the people's poet" who wrote a poem a day for the Detroit Free Press for 30 years. That's more than 11,000 poems! 

If you are lucky enough to come from a functional family with siblings, parents and children who love you, reach out and strengthen those bonds. Be a Stick-Together Family! There are many people who are not so lucky.

The Stick-Together Families

by Edgar Guest

The stick-together families are happier by far
Than the brothers and the sisters who take separate highways are.
The gladdest people living are the wholesome folks who make
A circle at the fireside that no power but death can break.
